Got stimulus? Tree planting is "shovel ready"; Guelph, Ontario, Canada; 2/23/09

• Tree-planting: it's 'shovel ready' Guelph Mercury - Guelph,Ontario,Canada
We should heed the advice of specialists like Sean Fox, of the University of Guelph's Arboretum, who says we should tote up the array of environmental, structural and health benefits that flow from a proper tree cultivation and management strategy.
Trees are the type of infrastructure that governments don't throw billions of dollars at, but tree-planting is the ultimate "shovel ready" project. With shovels in hand, we can all march to a planting site and get some seedlings off to a good start.
